Nothing writing related–in fact I’ve been doing pretty poorly on that account–but it is something that will be changing my life forever.
A few weeks back, I was sick all the time and couldn’t figure out why. Well, I took a pregnancy test and it was positive 🙂 I didn’t want to announce it yet though because anything can happen in the first trimester. I was pretty sick for awhile, unable to even keep liquid down. The doctor put me on anti-nausea medicine and now I can eat again, although I still get pretty queasy past 8 PM (my “morning sickness” hits in the evening).
This past Monday, I had to go to the doctor for another reason (because the meds were given me some other, um, unpleasant side effects :P) and while there, she wanted to do an ultrasound to see exactly how far I was along. The ultrasound tech had an opening less than an hour after my appointment, so I scurried around calling my husband and he rushed up there for the appointment.
And we got to see our little one for the first time! He/She had a very strong heartbeat–you could see it on the screen. I have to admit it was a bit overwhelming seeing it and knowing there’s a little person growing inside.
I’m almost nine weeks along, so I’m still pretty early. I would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers for baby’s safe delivery in the coming months. My EDD is June 16th, so he/she will be an early summer baby 🙂
Anyway, that’s why I’ve been MIA for awhile and haven’t really written anything for NaNo this year. Kind of been pre-occupied 🙂
